Some exciting classes coming up soon....

Sorry I am posting a bit late today, I am home with the kiddies this week so I am at the mercy of the nap schedule. That being said we do have some exciting news...we have booked two classes this fall with Michael David Sturlin!

Michael David Sturlin's 40 year career as a studio jewelry artist, educator, industry consultant and award winning goldsmith includes recognition from the World Gold Council, the American Jewelry Design Council, and the Jewelers of America's JA NY New Designer Gallery. Michael's internationally acclaimed jewelry focusing on minimalism in precious metal has been published in 75 magazine articles and is featured in the books MASTERS:GOLD and Crocheted Wire Jewelry.
